What is known is that billionaire dirtbag Jeffrey Epstein systematically abused young girls for years, possibly decades. Trump’s Secretary of Labor Alex Acosta, then a U.S. attorney for the district of Southern Florida, allowed Epstein to cut a sweetheart deal, admitting guilt but serving 13 months in prison instead of a possible life sentence. The deal was lightened even further with Epstein being allowed to work in an office outside of the prison for 12 hours a day. A Faustian pact. Trump apologist and famous celebrity attorney Alan Dershowitz has been implicated at various times over the past few years as being a part of the young girl human trafficking ring along with Epstein. Dershowitz has always maintained his innocence. Now, the Daily News reports that in a public transcript available in Manhattan’s federal court, Sarah Ransome says she was trafficked by Epstein to have sex with Dershowitz when she was in her 20s.
Dershowitz denies these allegations, arguing that Ransome has a history of making outrageous sexual assault claims and that he has never even met the woman—who lives in Barcelona. He has threatened to sue for defamation. However, Ransome is not the first person to link Dershowitz with Epstein’s abhorrent crimes.
Virginia Roberts was the first alleged Epstein victim to claim that he directed her to have sex with Dershowitz. Dershowitz insists he also has never met Roberts, who now lives in Australia.
Roberts alleged that Maxwell recruited her for Epstein in 1998, when she was 15 years old and working a summer job at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort. Roberts sued Maxwell for defamation, claiming the media heiress smeared her by denying the disturbing sex scheme.
Dershowitz has argued that the items being leaked to the press are suspiciously selective and that he has pushed for all of those transcripts to be released to the public, arguing that those documents would show Dershowitz has proven he was not even present at events where the alleged abuses took place.
